Catalogue Note

The attribution to this maker is not for sure. This mark is, without ant doubt his maker's mark, as registered by Jean Thuile in L'Orfèvrerie du Languedoc, vol. II, p. 68. Th author considers the silversmith to die in 1764. However, in his first volume, the author seems to state that the silversmith community guard in 1769.
